Something about this bloggie

Ok, I admit that I've failed somewhere before. But anyway welcome. Just a brief intro on what you should expect here:
1. Football. Not gonna post much of that any soon since season is over. :S
2. Anime, Games, etc. Just abt anything conceivable under the Japanese radar barring anything and everything Rule 34. Now that's illegal. Period. -.-;
3. Music. Everything to do with it is listed under the tab.
5. Unacceptable humour: Anything and everything is fair game here. As long as I don't get rounded up by the ISA. -.-'

The Known World=Fantasy world building in process. I: Used to be glossary, now devoted to random rambling; II: Character Concepts; III: Lore.
7. der Wolf=my Fictionpress account under the moniker Tsumujikaze no Soujutsu. A Ranger's Tale is hosted under this page. :)
8. New section now upped. Maybe I should also gun for upping A Ranger's Tale here since I do have this funny feeling that traffic coming to here is way more than whatever I'll get in FP.

Statement of intent: Everything said here is a figment of personal opinion, be it me or anybody commenting. I try to be responsible, but my parents=/=parents of the world.

@Druid of Luhn: Crap. Should have remembered far earlier to give you the credit for your CSS text box code. :(

A/N: But sadly, it seems that your CSS text box code has now been halved efficiency wise. :(

That most important note I should have added: Any images posted in this blog are NOT my own stuff. I got them from Google image search, I don't earn any shit by being a thief and liar. Those responsible for the pictures, rest assured that you all are great artists in your own regards. Sadly, we all know what limited space means in terms of posting.

Latest Note: Changed alignment for my page widgets due to my worry that I can't centre align the thing.

Note on A Ranger's Tale: In case any complaining fella wants to have a legal case with me, let this be known that A Ranger's Tale is rated M by default. I've upped the swearing and somewhat a bit on the dark/gritty factor. You all have been warned, let no little boy and girl enter the forbidden realm.

Latest on ART: A Ranger's Tale now starting to kick back in gear. But I really hate the insanely fluctuating climate here in S'pore.

P.S: Oh, and one more thing. Vid below is yet another ideal OP for A Ranger's Tale.

Server down...

Not the Google server ofc, but rather the Neverwinter server. You see, I alrdy got a new plaything after Marvel Heroes. Not that I'm gonna ditch Stan Lee and friends, but still Neverwinter is truly one hell of a challenge, Why? Because...

1. I tend to get myself disoriented easily.
2. My right hand tend to wander off too much.

Former is basically abt how the camera zoom while latter case is all abt hand-eye coordination. I still remembered the first time I played this for a few hours or so. Thankfully I managed to get used to the motion swaying. I dunno who was the wise magi advising the powers-that-be to do this, but surely utilizing the chaotic manner of camera zooming really works, Why? Because...

1. It gives you a semi-real feel of actual combat.
2. It sets your blood pumping.

Former is basically trying to create a visual illusion of being "there" while latter case is all abt either winning or dying.

But firstly, a solemn advice from yours truly...
This is a game I won't recommend to those below the mental age of 21. You see, there's no actual blood, gore, and body parts. Such details belong to series like God of War and Ninja Gaiden. My only problem with Neverwinter is the fact that it can get extremely addictive if you're not careful. In short, the CC* system can AND will promise you one hell of a free roller coaster ride.**
*CC=/=Crowd Control. Rather, CC=Chaotic Camera
**Either that or you can liken it to one hell of a free bungee jump.
Parents, you've been notified. Any Korean behavior from henceforth is no longer my problem.

Some tips (?) via personal experience
1. Be lagi sure to load yourself w/potions (pls use your brain before splurging like some super chio SPG due to diff types of healing potion healing diff amount of HP). You'll need them should you do a Han Solo.
(pardon my pun, may the President of United States forgive my temerity)

2. In the event where you decided to party, you can forget abt rule satu.
(exemption of any Devoted Cleric from the team equation, however, is exempted from rule dua)

3. In case of doubt, tank.
(unless you wanna risk getting tanked via choosing a DPS as your Chosen One. Using Control Wizard/Scourge Warlock, on the hand...)

4. This is NOT Diablo. In short, either you'll want to get used to whatever camera angle as threat generator or... well...

5. Apparently, you'll have to wait till lvl 32 to have a surefire way in getting rare gear. Until then, you better go grab every Many-Arrows Insignia you see.

6. Pertaining to rule lima, participating in orc skirmish should be a good start.

7. If you get an unidentified item in skirmish or dungeon rush, make sure you really need that item. In any case of doubt, ask yourself whether said equipment is applicable to your character.
(I actually realized it just now after allowing my head to cool down. Being socially inadequate is bad, worst if you happen to be...)

8. Daily quests is your best bet in getting rough Astral Diamonds, Refined Astral Diamonds is every gamer's BFF.

9. You can only do Invocation on 3 hallowed grounds:
a. Campfire
b. Altar
c. That area of Protector's Enclave with a certain hot chick.

10. Creating your own Altar is useful if you happen to fulfill three criteria, namely:
a. You're in need of heal.
b. You're in need of Ctrl+I (i.e. Invocation timer kosong)
c. You're under no risk of generating threat (then again, only stupid ppl will do that 10 tries out of 10)

11. If possible, try doing either Skirmish or Dungeon whenever possible. Both if you happen to have the entire day to yourself. This is to ensure you can get higher lvl loot since treasure chest loot is no diff from 50-50 ball at times.
(read: You may end up getting a higher lvl loot where in fact your current item is a better fit)

12. If you can't get everything in one go, kill monsters first. More oft than not, chest is more important.
(that is unless you get crap for reward)

13. Campfire is very important. On one hand, this ensures minimal wastage of potion (and with that $$$ wasted on potions). On the other, allow Wade Wilson to be my spokesman...
14. Try experimenting with diff skill sets. Neverwinter is NOT your everyday S'porean MMO b/c it requires a lot of trial and error in terms of finding your most effective game. Guess this might be also why Campfire spots are so frequent in-game.
(at least for my current circumstances)

15. If you're good enough, less than 10 healing kit is enough. If not, make sure you have around 10 or so. Fighting monsters has nvr been such a pain in the ass (for me).
